Double Header Wedding Weekend!
This past winter we have been going through some photos and reflecting on our 2017 wedding season. We realized that the final wedding of the year was our first double header! And by double header I mean two weddings in one weekend. And by two weddings I mean both in the same day!
This is probably no big deal for most wedding vendors. We have a pretty small but super tight knit team at Unveiled. We love what we do and we work very hard at making our bride's day perfect. We offer services such as full and partial event planning, floral design, general design, drapery and more. So, two floral jobs or two planning jobs are no problem. But, both brides chose our full event planning/design packages plus floral! Ahhhhhhhh! We were so excited and it was all fantastic but a little scary at the same time.
We broke up into two small teams. Both brides needed to get the very best care. We meticulously planned out every detail and went our separate ways that beautiful October day. One team went to Chicago and one team to Chesterton. Each bride had very different taste and the planning process for each was so much fun!
Wedding #1 Amy & Joel - This was our home town wedding in Chesterton and the one that I attended myself. I have known this family for a long time. In fact, I planned her sister's wedding almost 5 years ago. I was thrilled to get a call back for Amy! Check out these beautiful photos!

Wedding #2 Katie & Drew - Sweet Home Chicago! I am a city girl at heart and I was super sad I couldn't attend this wedding. Although I assisted with the planning process, they were in good hands with my sister Lisa. We have planned many events together over the years and her team ROCKED it! Check it out.

So, what is the moral of the story you ask. Well...never under estimate the power of team work. It was hard and some of us worked a 70 hour week but, it was worth every second! We adore all of our brides and we look forward to starting the 2018 wedding season off with a bang! We can even handle a few more double headers!
